The Bubble Over My Head: What Are Your Motives In A Relationship?

When you are in a relationship, Dr. Phil says it’s important to ask yourself why you behave the way you do. You should ask yourself if the thoughts you’re having – particularly if you’re in a relationship that’s in trouble – are rational. “Ask yourself rationally: ‘Is this really true, or am I just telling myself what I want to hear?’” Dr. Phil says. “And when you make choices, you’ve got to check your motives. 'Why am I doing this? What’s really driving what I’m doing in this relationship?'” Hear more of Dr. Phil’s advice in The Bubble Over My Head video above. On the episode "'Our Brother is a Mooch and Our Mother Needs to Cut the Cord,'" Dr. Phil speaks with a mom who admits to enabling her 33-year-old son – Dr. Phil says to make herself feel better.
